Trump Ally Defiant – Gives Powerful Response To Prison Threats

Days after a federal judge ordered that former President Donald Trump’s advisor Steve Bannon return to prison this July 1st for a four-month sentence, Bannon said that he did not “fear going to prison.”

In an interview with Tucker Carlson, a conservative journalist and commentator, Bannon, who hosts the War Room podcast, claimed to have “served” in the US Navy and expressed no fear of going to jail or serving time as a “political prisoner.”

Before joining the Trump campaign as CEO in August 2016, Bannon was also the executive chairman of Breitbart News.

I was on a Navy destroyer in the North Arabian Sea, Western Pacific, Persian Gulf, and South China Sea for nearly four years in my twenties. As a result, in my twenties, I served my nation on a Navy destroyer. “I’ll serve my nation in a federal jail when I’m seventy years old,” Bannon said. “It won’t change my life; it makes no difference. My social agenda is really modest. I’m committed to this mission of rescuing my nation, and I will go to jail for political reasons if necessary.

In 2022, a jury found Bannon guilty and sentenced him to four months in jail; however, Bannon filed an appeal, postponing the sentence. An appeals court in May upheld Bannon’s conviction for disregarding a subpoena from the Democratic-led House committee, established to investigate the disturbance at the Capitol on January 6, 2021.

“This is a misdemeanor,” Bannon added, citing a man in the “federal courthouse” in DC, who claimed the court was “so backed up with crimes” and that he “had never remembered a single misdemeanor ever being tried” or going to trial.

Former WH adviser Peter Navarro, who defied a subpoena from the Democratic-run January 6 Select Committee, was the first member of the Trump administration to go through a four-month prison term for contempt of Congress, Bannon continued.

The War Room host went on to suggest that he was ready to take this all the way to the US Supreme Court, stating that he had instructed his staff that he was willing to “go to the Supreme Court” “whatever it costs.”

“Today, July 1, I served my country as a Navy ship captain; tomorrow, I’ll serve my country as a political prisoner serving a misdemeanor in a federal prison,” Bannon declared. “I don’t even blink. We must do all it takes to prevail in this revolution.

Bannon’s lawyer, David Schoen, responded to the appeals court’s decision to uphold the contempt conviction in May, calling it “wrong” and expressing a “very hazardous view of the threshold for criminal responsibility for any defendant.”

Bannon departed the Trump administration in August 2017 after serving as the chief strategist there, and he later returned to Breitbart News before leaving again in early 2018.

Bannon went on to say that he had “to win this,” and that this was a “fight to the knife.”
